May #16, May Revue, 2016

This issue, realized with Claire Fontaine, positions itself in the many continuities of a previous one—May no. 4, published in October 2010, that presented a selection of foundational resources from the Italian feminist movements of the 1970s and 1980s (with texts by the Milan Women’s Bookstore, Carla Lonzi, Lea Melandri, Antonella Nappi, etc.) At the time, Fulvia Carnevale, an assistant of Claire Fontaine and the guest editor-in-chief, edited the group of texts and signed the introduction. 
The texts published here are for the most part interventions from two London symposiums that took place in 2015 and 2016, whose specific issues Claire Fontaine’s introductory text will illuminate. A number of these essays take direct inspiration from the textual sources introduced in May 4. With this second chapter, the revue seeks to trace an editorial line more emphatically marked by feminist questions stemming from this Italian history and to re-interrogate complex concepts such as self-abolition, self-consciousness and separatism—or, to cite Marina Vishmidt, to contribute towards a “way of thinking the affirmative and negative moments of any radical emancipatory movement.”

Anicka Yi, Carissa Rodriguez, Jordan Lord, Lise Soskolne, The Politics of Friendship, Edition Patrick Frey, STUDIOLO, 2013

On July 9, 2013, the web journal The New Inquiry released "Further Materials toward a Theory of the Man-Child" by Mal Ahern and Moira Weigel, and the essay went viral (http://thenewinquiry.com/essays/further-materials-toward-a-theory-of-the-man-child/). Serving up more than one version of what or who possibly lurks behind every Young-Girl (http://libcom.org/files/jeune-fille.pdf & the original text in French: http://www.bloom0101.org/jeunefille.pdf), the essay articulated a term of engagement rampant not only in academia where the authors circulate, but endemic as well in the worlds of contemporary art and its structures of success– a disgracefully sexist field. A solo exhibition by Anicka Yi at STUDIOLO slated for September 2013 evolved into a collaborative project among Anicka Yi, Jordan Lord, Lise Soskolne and Carissa Rodriguez. Yi and Lord’s reading of Derrida’s The Politics of Friendship became the grounds for a related conversation about responsibility, call and response. The group asked others to respond to Ahern and Weigel’s essay in the form of a poster, image, or text to be compiled into a publication.
